Located in the Finnish heartland, among some of the country’s 188,000 lakes, you’ll find Jyväskylä, an integral part of the metal map.
Currently Jyväskylä is Finland’s seventh-largest city, but it has one of the highest population growth rates in the country. Probably because people there like to – play metal. Day and night.
A surprisingly international city, Jyväskylä is home to over 100 different nationalities and places a heavy emphasis on education, sports and ICT. It’s also one of the youngest cities in Finland: 25 percent of Jyväskylä’s inhabitants are either university students or school-age children.
